Well, Hopefully they'll get this Done

The Obama Administration is pushing for legislation to push candy and sugary drinks out of schools. Read about it here:

My comment: If that kid's mother keeps Pop Tarts in the house for him to take to school once he can't buy them at school anymore, she's not doing him any favors.

I'm lucky enough to live in a school district where a group of parent activists got soda, candy, and sugary drinks out of the schools years ago. They still sell junk food, but at least it's a higher quality of junk, i.e., Sun Chips instead of Lays Potato Chips.

And, a few years ago, the parents voted to spend more on lunches to have all lunches be organic, locally sourced and all whole grain. It's certainly not perfect, but it's better.

Another comment, you shouldn't have to be dependent on making kids fat to raise money for sports team.
